What we are looking out for

    • T-shaped individual with a specialization in either backend or frontend, and also comfortable and confident in working on other technologies.
    • It's all just learning to you - and you learn fast.
    • You are practical. You approach problems efficiently, suppressing perfectionism when time is a priority.
    • You are accountable. You lead technical discussions to make well-reasoned technical team-decisions, and own it.
    • You are a problem solver, not just a coder. You handle the full development cycle of a problem i.e. formalize task, write code and tests, setup and support production (DevOps), resolve user requests.
    • You are a believer of maintainable code. You live and breath Clean Code and Code Complete.
    • You are a believer of tests. You write good tests, and hunt down flakey ones.
    • You are a continuous deliverer. You've seen the beauty of fast merge-test-deploy turnaround, and the importance of speedy fixes.
    • You are a tech guru. You understand the whole technology stack at all levels: from network and user-space code to OS internals and hardware. *for senior candidates*
